Since Osama bin Laden was killed on Sunday, several baseball teams have taken steps to honor the military. The San Diego Padres wore their camouflage uniforms and gave free tickets to service men and women, the Dodgers offered tickets to the military for the month of May, and the Mets donated 4,000 tickets to military personnel. Those were all awesome actions, but the coolest show of support may have come from the Tampa Bay Rays, no surprise.
The Rays, who have themed road trips thanks to manager Joe Maddon, got specially made shirts that support Navy SEAL Team 6 — the same group that carried out the bin Laden mission. Check em out:
Those were pretty awesome, but I still say nothing compares to their sweet BRayzers plaid blazers. Here are pictures of their other themed road trips and custom made shirts for comparison:
